11. Q. I’m on a climb via clearance and the controller vectors me off the procedure. Do I continue to
“Climb Via?” A. NO. You are laterally and vertically off of the procedure. The controller will issue an altitude to maintain and provide a further “expect” clearance. Note: Request an altitude to maintain if the controller does not provide one. Esta no . 12. Q. What if I receive a “Cleared” or “Cleared Via” clearance; am I permitted to climb to meet any published altitudes? A. NO. Only a “Climb Via” clearance gives you the vertical authorization to climb and comply with the published altitude restrictions. The other two examples are a “lateral” clearance. Note: Compliance with published speed restrictions are required, unless canceled or modified by ATC. Esta no. 13. Q. What if there are “EXPECT” altitudes published on the SID? A. Expect altitudes are for planning purposes only and you are not expected to comply with
published “EXPECT” restrictions unless ATC has specifically instructed you to do so. Esta no .
